I have searched the F.A.Q. sections and have found no answers for the following questions:
A) What is the difference between Community Audio and LMA?
I ask because I have seen shows from bands that I know in the Community Audio section and I am not sure what their taper policy is. I will ask them today.
AND
B) When I upload a show do I need to leave in the banter and tuning? As a musician I didn't want to hear it on a recording and as a fan I still don't want to hear it. Most of the shows I pass out are what I call a "fan edit", fade in/music/fade out. All the bands/fans who have received my disks, so far, have appreciated this fact.

LMA is for full, live performances, in lossless format, by bands that have officially granted permission for online hosting. Community Audio is for anything other than the above, which you have personally obtained permission to upload. So it might be one live song, or an mp3 of a full performance, or a studio demo/remix, or some other piece of audio (speeches, readings, nature/ambient recordings, etc.).

B) When I upload a show do I need to leave in the banter and tuning? As a musician I didn't want to hear it on a recording and as a fan I still don't want to hear it. Most of the shows I pass out are what I call a "fan edit", fade in/music/fade out. All the bands/fans who have received my disks, so far, have appreciated this fact.

You don't have to, but I think you'll find that the vast majority of uploads contain it. The only time I've ever cut anything, it was crowd noise between the main set and encore, and only then to keep the show from running onto another CD. Then again, I track my shows so that the beginning of the track starts with the first note of the song, so anyone who wants to leave out the banter and tuning can just hit the skip button.
